Editorial Reviews

On the gritty streets of LA, the destinies of four people desperate for connection and redemption are about to collide. Jessica Biel, Ray Liotta, Forest Whitaker and Eddie Redmayne lead a top-notch cast in this powerful thriller about an overwhelmed erotic dancer, a grieving husband who has lost his will to live, a terminally ill ex-con and a pathologically shy mortician. With Kris Kristofferson, Lisa Kudrow and Patrick Swayze in unforgettable supporting roles, this film movingly chronicles the imperfect lives of people teetering on the edge of despair and the miracles that bring them back.

Everyone has their problems. This we are constantly reminded of in Timothy Linh Bui's latest film, Powder Blue. Linh Bui, who both wrote and directed this film, is a newcomer to mainstream film, having previously directed one feature-length film, 2001's Green Dragon.

Powder Blue is the story of a pivotal week in the life of four individuals struggling to keep their lives together. Charlie (Forest Whitaker) is an ex-priest battling suicidal tendencies due to the anguish of losing his wife. Jack (Ray Liotta) is a recently released hit man who recently found out about the cancer in his body. Qwerty (Eddie Redmayne) is an awkward, twenty-something mortician whose asthma acts up when he tries to talk to women. And Rose Johnny (Jessica Biel) is a stripper trying to pay the medical bills of her comatose son. Each is hurting immensely. Each is looking for some glimmer of hope.

This is a strange film in terms of the press that it has been getting. The overwhelming majority of articles and news surrounding this project have narrowly focused on the fact that Jessica Biel has a small handful of topless scenes. In fact, one online site boldly proclaims, "this film is always going to be known for one thing -- Jessica Biel was topless in it." Many other sites which have written pieces on this movie have uniformly dubbed Powder Blue "the Jessica Biel Stripper Movie." Commentary on the hyper-sexualized yet stuck in a 15-year-old boy's body nature of American culture aside, this film is much more than a stripper movie and will hopefully be remembered as a good piece of art, rather than the fact that one of the actors shows some skin.

The core of this film is the nature of love. What is love? How do we find it? What happens when we lose it?

5.0 out of 5 stars An Interesting Urban Drama Movie September 14, 2009
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
"Several Los Angelinos meet on Christmas Eve through chance, tragedy and divine intervention. Velvet Larry (Patrick Swayze) is the sleazy owner of the strip club where Rose Johnny (Jessica Biel) dances. Qwerty Doolittle is a mortician who falls in love with her. Randall (Chris Kristofferson) is the head of a corporate crime organization who tries to convince his former employee not to seek vengeance on his former co-workers. Charlie (Forrest Whitaker), who also serves as a producer on the film, will play a suicidal ex-priest. Lexus is a transsexual prostitute who shares an unexpected bond with the priest".

The parallel stories of four individuals meeting by chance in this movie only to show the big picture: How lonely people can be living in a big city like LA. With a star cast, I recommend this movie that has a very modern urban plot and photography similar to "Crash". It was entertaining and I would recommend it for fans of Jessica Biel (she plays a stripper hooked on drugs), her role in this movie is far different from previous ones she starred in movies. Her character's story is sad and troubling. But, she is very convincing as Rose Johnny. An unexpected chain of events will take place and it could change her life or not.

It was a good movie and I recommend it. It was very entertaining. The R rating is appropriated due to the thematic of the movie.

5.0 out of 5 stars Quantum Christmas Anthology December 11, 2009
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
Much better than other "better" Crash-like films. Humble production values are its own strength. Swayze was perfect. Beil is lovely with clothes. Her nudity is part of the film which has a lot to offer in the total product; despite so called 'critical' 'weaknesses'. LA Blue Xmas Redemption film has legs. It may take decades for this movie to be appreciated.
Blu-ray looks and sounds fine.

3.0 out of 5 stars Atmospheric and poignant film! October 4, 2011
Format:DVD
The tendency to tell interconnected stories has cornered many scripts in this decade. Some of them have been forgotten, but just a few have been able to achieve a respectable status. This is one of them.

This picture has unforgettable moments, that remain in our memory although it never reaches the coveted dramatic oneness.

Forest Whitaker adds his powerful presence in his role as a troubled man in search of love. Ray Liotta shows us his huge talent in this secondary role. But the most surprising fact was to watch Jessica Biel in the central role around which two stories are articulated. For the first time, I mu8st confess she chews the scennery in the most complex role of her career and the final outcome was succesful.

Haunting, thoughtful and gloomy film superbly photographed and better edited.

4.0 out of 5 stars The Quest For Something, Anything May 27, 2009
Format:DVD
This is a desperate quest on several levels that is very real for these times.

Ray Liotta portrays a dying man, who - after 25 years in prison - attempts to connect with a daughter he has never met in this powerful drama of a desperate journey to make things right, before it's too late. His daughter (expertly played by Jessica Biel) is a "performer" in a gentleman's club and he pretends to be just another customer to talk with her.

With Lisa Kudrow and Forest Whitaker, the major characters are flawed and troubled, but have not given up hope to achieve something - anything - that can make life pleasant (tolerable?) for at least a short period of time, though they are stretched to the limit due to a battering from the wicked tsunami of daily living.
